“With this project, I wanted to bridge the gap between substance and content,” Massiah explains to HipHopDX. “The separation between those two elements has been growing wider and wider in this microwave society. Merging my own ideals and societal views with an animated character gave me the freedom to tell my story and innovate at the same time. Fuck the system. Feed the culture.”
To coincide with the dawning of the Angel of Sin, Massiah is also launching his website and merch hub. Fans will be able to interactively experience the entire comic through panel modules. Over the next few weeks, a full Instagram takeover will also reveal the comic in full with digital and physical copies hitting the website shortly after.

Comic book fandom and Hip Hop lure are meeting halfway with the upcoming release of Massiah’s Massiah Profit: Angel of Sin EP.
The Vancouver rapper (formerly known as KAi Sky Walker) is upping the creativity of the rollout and is releasing a 20-page comic book based on the main character: a black vigilante superhero named Massiah Profit.
